Saudi crown prince ordered Khashoggi's assassination: CIA

Quote:Washington: The CIA has concluded that Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman ordered the assassination of journalist Jamal Khashoggi in Istanbul last month, contradicting the Saudi government's claims that he was not involved.

The CIA's assessment, in which officials have said they have high confidence, is the most definitive to date linking Mohammed to the operation and complicates the Trump administration's efforts to preserve its relationship with a close ally.

A team of 15 Saudi agents flew to Istanbul on government aircraft in October and killed Khashoggi inside the Saudi consulate, where he had come to pick up documents that he needed for his planned marriage to a Turkish woman.

In reaching its conclusions, the CIA examined multiple sources of intelligence, including a phone call that the prince's brother Khalid bin Salman, the Saudi ambassador to the United States, had with Khashoggi, according to the people familiar with the matter who spoke on the condition of anonymity.

Khalid told Khashoggi, a contributing columnist to The Washington Post, that he should go to the Saudi consulate in Istanbul to retrieve the documents and gave him assurances that it would be safe to do so.

It is not clear if Khalid knew that Khashoggi would be killed, but he made the call at his brother's direction, according to the people familiar with the call, which was intercepted by US intelligence.

New evidence?



Despite recordings which prove that the Khashoggi murder was ordered at the "highest levels" Trump's national security adviser John Bolton, said that he did not think people who heard the recordings concluded that the Crown Prince was linked to the killing. "And certainly that is not the position of the Saudi Government," Bolton said in Singapore.

The fact is, the Trump Administration has made Saudi Arabia Washington’s most crucial Arab partner, and despite expected denials, Bolton himself is evidently as complicit as the Crown Prince is.

Does that explain Bolton/Saudi damage control?

It's a set up.

He took the throne and immediately started arresting corrupt officials and royal family members and seizing their assets. He has to go. I was expecting them to kill him but I guess this will be just as effective. And just to make it better, they got rid of a Muslim Brotherhood asset.

What politics from both sides wants to teach us is that things are never complex. If you have your little package and something doesn't fit into that package, You don't know what to make of it so you want to dismiss it or then you will have to do the work of reconsidering your assumptions. - Michael Malice

He said Islam does not require a burka the other day... that's actually a pretty big deal.

I'm wondering if whatever dirt Trump really has on him is being used as political social leverage?
